(My guess:)

There's no standard input format for name servers, especially 
regarding configuration information.  The problem isn't (just) that 
the root anchor isn't in the format for any name server, the problem 
is that name servers can't read the formats given.

If you want it for BIND, for example, ISC would be the place to get 
it in the "trusted-keys" syntax.

Spouses, like Internet protocols, lack necessary troubleshooting tools. Sigh.
